Chaparral calls to mind the dry, sage-covered hills that rise from the California coast. Made in the tradition of alpine herbal liqueurs from Italy and France and inspired by 19th century medicinal yerba santa tinctures, this bracing digestif can be enjoyed neat or as an exceptional cocktailing ingredient. Experiment using Chaparral as you would Chartreuse, Becherovka, or Strega.
